The final figures of the Census 2011 are still to be published, Registrar General of India and Census Commissioner has said.
The office stated this while responding to a RTI query requesting it details about the population of transgenders in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh.
The department said it was unable to furnish fresh data about their population as the Census was not published yet.
"The data provided in the reply is based on the Census 2001 as the Census 2011 is yet to be published," it said.
The mammoth exercise of the 15th Census began on 1 April 2010. In April 2013, Home Minster Shushil Kumar Shinde had released the statistics.
